OAKVILLE, ON – It appears that Newfoundland and Labrador, as with much of the rest of the country, is in for some typical fall weather over the next couple of months.

The Weather Network released its fall forecast for 2017 today, taking in the months of September, October and November.

"Looking at current weather patterns, the majority of the country should be in store for a quintessentially-Canadian fall," Chris Scott, The Weather Network’s chief meteorologist, said in a news release.

For this province, the temperature outlook is forecasted to be near to slightly above normal. Southern Newfoundland should see above normal temperatures, due partially to warm water temperatures in the western Atlantic basin. In Labrador, temperatures are expected to be near normal.

According to The Weather Network, “normal” is a constantly moving target across Canada during the transitional fall months with most areas losing one to three degrees from their average temperature each week.

Much of Newfoundland is also expected to see near to above normal precipitation this fall due to the threat for some storms that could bring excessive rainfall. Significant periods of dry weather will also be a feature of the season, however.

In its preview of the upcoming winter, The Weather Network is predicting an active storm track for Atlantic Canada with near normal temperatures.
